The Kansas football team has lost eight straight games this season and 44 in a row on the road — tied for worst all-time for a major conference team — dating back to the 2009 season. They Jayhawks (1-8 overall, 0-6 Big 12) hope to end both streaks at Texas (4-5, 3-3).
If you missed it on Twitter, Benton Smith is reporting that Carter Stanley is available tonight. I would think that means he's starting at QB. On defense, Mike Lee, Shak Taylor and Josh Ehambe are all OUT with injuries.
KU tried an onside kick. Texas recovers. I like it. Be aggressive with nothing to lose.
Just like last year, Texas scores on its first play. Shane Buechele with a 49-yard TD pass.
As expected, Carter Stanley at QB.
First pass to Steven Sims goes backwards. 3rd-and-10 upcoming...
Texas jumps offsides before the third down snap. KU gets another crack at it.
And KU commits a false start. Taketh and giveth away.
Yikes. Carter Stanley injured after he was hit on the 3rd down play. Incomplete pass so KU will punt.
Texas: 1 play, 1 touchdown. Kansas: 3 plays, 0 yards.
How did Jason Hall get such a clean run at Stanley? Offensive line completely botched protection on that blitz.
Texas will start its next drive at its own 40.
Josh Klingler on KU radio said Stanley was talking with Meacham when he returned to the sideline. May be a sign that he returns on next drive.
Two straight Daniel Young run plays. 3rd-and-1 upcoming for the Longhorns...
Daniel Young stuffed on 3rd down run. Ogbebor credited with the tackle. Texas going for it.
The aggressiveness pays off. First down Texas.
Osaze Ogbebor with a sack on 3rd down. Texas forced to punt. Nice hold by KU's defense at midfield.
Michael Dickson, an all-american punter, downs the Jayhawks at the 1-yard line.
